from your Google or BING account.

the addresses you edit exclusively for internal purposes. Selling or renting the addresses is prohibited and will result in the deactivation
of the program. In this case there will be no refund of the rental price.
If you want to use BING or Google for batch geocoding in addition to OSM (OpenStreetMaps), you need to confirm their usage rights
and purchase the respective API additionally. The functionality of the program can change at any time (update) without notice.

Structure of the Excel table (Microsoft Excel 2013 ... 2019 ... Office 365)
The Excel table - must begin - in the first row with the column headings. All columns must be labelled.
The addresses must start sequentially from the 2nd line and blank lines are not allowed between start and end row.
Blank lines and blank columns outside the address block must be removed.
Optimum set up
The first two columns ( A + B) should contain a consecutive number (for example, SAP number) and the name (for example, company).
The columns ( C + D + E + F + G ) contain necessary address information, but these can be distributed in the Excel table as required.
Please note that the street name must comply with the house number and the country code is in ISO format (US - UK - DE - CH - UK).
The postcode should be complete, e.g. - 5 digits - for USA, Germany, France, Italy, - 4 digits - for Austria, Switzerland, Netherlands etc.
Further information is optional, e.g. telephone, e-mail, web address, sales, employees, imprint etc.
Furthermore, a column with the designation: "Protocol or updated" is useful. Here the program enters the respective (last) processing date
of the address.
All addresses are checked for plausibility. For example, post boxes instead of street names, missing house numbers, missing postal codes
or city names. In this way, corrections can be made in the master data in advance.
All selected actions, e.g. Web Search, Batch Geocoding: - , refer to the entire Excel file.
Attention: The Excel table must not contain empty lines (inside and at the end).
All selected actions, e.g. Web Search, Batch Geocoding: - , refer to the selected rows.
